Trustworthiness

The degree to which a system or component avoids compromising, corrupting, or delaying sensitive information.

The trait of deserving trust and confidence.

Trustworthiness is a moral value considered to be a virtue. A trustworthy person is someone in whom we can place our trust and rest assured that the trust will not be betrayed.

A person can prove his trustworthiness by fulfilling an assigned responsibility - and as an extension of that, to not let down our expectations. The responsibility can be either material, such as delivering a mail package on time, or it can be a non-material such as keeping an important secret to himself.

In order for one to trust another, their worth and integrity must be constantly proven over time.


Today Hailey's school held a Core Virtues Assembly and awarded kids from each class that displayed one of the core values they have been studying this quarter. I am beaming with pride as I tell you that Hailey was selected for the Trustworthiness Award for 1st grade! That's my girl!
